ALMANAC CD Cover nominated for "Masterpieces 2020"

I feel honored, that the current ALMANAC CD "Rush Of Death" was nominated for "Masterpieces 2020" , and was choosen as one of the best Artworks in Heavy Metal section. Many thanks to our art designer Gyula Havancsák and to our photographer Dominik Louis. For me personaly, it's one of the best cover in my discographie with a real personal motive.


ALMANAC - release previously unreleased version of "Kingdom Of The Blind"

Victor Smolski's ALMANAC present a previously unreleased version of 'Kingdom Of The Blind', which originally was part of 2017's "Kingslayer" album featuring vocalist Frank Beck (GAMMA RAY) as well as new arrangements.
Victor Smolski comments:
"On our European Tour 2020, Frank Beck became the main singer of ALMANAC. 'Kingdom Of The Blind' was his favourite song from ALMANAC. So, we decided to do a new version of this song with great support from Belarus Symphony Orchestra, which brings the song to a new level."

A lyric video for the track can be viewed here:

The track is available as digital single on all platforms now. Furthermore, a demo version of the song is part of's "Metal Alliance vol. 4" compilation that's available on CD at

Release of "Rush Of Death" one year ago

It´s incredible how fast time goes by. Already one year ago since we released "Rush Of Death" Almanac CD. A lot of inspiration for the lyrics was my racing and Tim´s climbing experience. If you don´t have this CD so far, I recommend to order Digi Book (CD+DVD). It has a great live performance from Europe, Asia, Russia and so on.
